Inside the Company

Pocko has been collaborating with artists and brands since 1999. Its first project was a series of pocket-sized art books, now featured in the permanent collections at MOMA and the V&A.

Guided by Nicola Schwartz, a fine art graduate from the Royal College of Art, Pocko naturally progressed into representing artists and creative services. It now represents an exciting roster of international talents that span a range of media covering CGI, photography, traditional illustration and more.

Entry-Level Opportunities

Pocko believes that the best way to learn is from experience, which is why every entry-level position involves getting stuck in with a hands-on approach.

You may find yourself closely working with the managing agents and producers, as well as managing your own projects and overseeing briefs.
